15 Amazing Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Canary Wharf, England - Updated 2022

airbnb London Canary Wharf, Uk

London has plenty of amazing things to do and see. Mention London and most people would think of the Westminster area, where famous landmarks like Big Ben and the Parliament House are located along the Thames. However, if it gets a little too claustrophobic, Canary Wharf in East London offers a quieter experience without sacrificing the characteristics of what makes London such an amazing city.

Just 20 minutes away from central London via the tube, Canary Wharf was once one of the busiest docks in the world. Today, it holds no less importance. It is a major business district and is home to some of England’s tallest skyscrapers, with plenty of history, nature, shopping and entertainment activities here – basically, everything you’ll get in London, except considerably quieter.

Airbnb offers plenty of accommodation options. If the list is too overwhelming, we’ve got you – here are our recommendations of the top Airbnbs in Canary Wharf, London, UK.
